So the other day I was watching a show called "Auction Kings" on discovery channel. It is a reality show about a group of people who go around
looking for random items and rare stuff to put up for sale in the auction house.
The episode I watched had a very interesting item involved...
The auction kings met with a man who said he had a "knight's templar" (en.wikipedia.org...
) uniform and sword that
belonged to his grandfather, who was a part of secret societies. When asked what any of the symbolism or bizarre medals on the uniform meant, he said
that his grandfather never told him as it was a secret. The man did feel bad about selling the uniform and sword, as he felt his grandfather
"entrusted" it to him in the hopes he would keep it secret as he had, but in the end, the need to pay bills outweighs the need to protect family
Now if you know anything about the knights templar... you know that it is a group shrouded with mystery, as it was supposedly disbanded hundreds of
years ago, yet some still claim them to be an active group- some people even speculate that the The Powers That Be, or at least parts of TPTB, are a
form of the knights templar.
The suit was examined by an expert, who claimed it to be an authentic mason-designed suit from the mid 20th century- around the same time the man's
grandfather was attending his secret meetings. The suit ended up selling for a few hundred dollars.
Here is the involved clips from the episode: (NOTE- after watching the first part, wait a few seconds and the next part will begin streaming).
I myself think that regular masonic groups break off into other splinter groups that are completely secret... even to some regular or even high-level
masons. Maybe this suit represents one of these secret groups- this groups goals and focuses, however, are completely up for debate.
